the two older Munchkins have been showing a lot of interest in photography. for Christmas 2 or 3 years ago, we bought davey his own digital camera (a little point and shoot for $30). and it held all of like 8 photos – not helpful or useful when your kiddo wants to take 100! i don’t even know where that camera is right now.
so last weekend, while dave was drinking his morning coffee in the backyard, he found a butterfly. he came back inside, put the long lens on the camera and went back outside to snap some photos.
and then he did something that really surprised me. he put the camera neck strap around davey’s neck and let him go to town. and then samantha got a turn. and the following 136 photos (yep… i’m sharing them all) are the results of their labor, but in reverse order (because i don’t know how to get the photos to upload here “automatically” in forward order):
if you’re actually STILL with me here, THANK YOU for checking out the wonders from my budding photographers! i think they did a pretty darn good job and a few of these photos are on my “current favorite photos” list. also, i love all the “low angle” photos (because they’re shorter than i am)!
later, dave headed to the garage and dug around in the photography cabinet for our older camera body (which he was going to sell on eBay but never did….) and a basic lens. then he let the kids use that camera (inside only, since we can’t find the neck strap for it!)…. but i’ll share those photos (that i haven’t even seen yet) in another post soon.
